Last week saw the launch of Rainbows – a support and fundraising group for LGBTQ+ pupils, friends and community projects. The launch was a massive success with 21 pupils turning up to volunteer both to join the group and to help fundraise for Wigan’s first ever Pride event. The group discussed the benefits of having the support group in school, ways the school can better support pupils and ways we can start to help raise money. A massive thank you to Miss Simpkin for leading the group and to all pupils who attended. If any more pupils or parents would like to get involved with fundraising for Pride, please contact Mrs Dawson. Don’t forget that we can also be reached by email at
